I am sure you will enjoy your Sahara. I purchased a 2010 2-dr Sahara in September with all the goodies and am really having a good time with it. It has served me well off road, and with the Siris and Nav/Bluetooth/Voice Recognition suits my needs around town and on short trips.
The only upgrade I made was upsizing the tires just a bit.
It is a 6-speed amnual that had the popping out of 1st issue. This was resolved when my retailer swapped out the interior shift boot. It hasn't happened since then (4 months/5k miles).
I read all this bad press about Chrysler and the trickel down to its other brands but quite frankly, I don't see it. My Wrangler meets or exceeds my every expectation.

I've had 3 Chryslers in the past 6 years...a PT Cruiser and two T&C vans. No problems with any of them. I also had a Dodge Ram 1500 that I owned for 5 years with no problems, either. While I'd probably stay away from the Jeep "soccer mom" cars like the Cherokee or Liberty, I believe that the Wrangler series have proven themselves.
Where I live, you see a LOT of Wranglers on the road, mostly the 2-door versions. I have two VERY big dogs, so I really need the 4 doors. Around here, a Jeep is the best vehicle for our tough winters and top-down summers.
I'm glad you were able to get your problems resolved. I'm looking forward to posting in the near future with some brags about my new Jeep!

No input for the JK, but I'm still preferring the TJ's. Aftermarket support is a LOT cheaper for parts on the TJ than the JK, but as the JK is out longer, it'll get better... I hope.

That reminds me of my '76 CJ-5..
Fatter tires, a roll bar and a custom bumper, and you'd be right there!

I picked that pic because it reminded me of my '74.
Mine had a roll bar but otherwise looked very similar.
#269 of 277 I Wanted To Share Something With Other Jeep Owners

I was running low on oil last night and I told my wife I'd take her to work.. Once I dropped her off, I headed for Walmart.. There I grabbed two qts of motor oil and headed for home.. But along the way, I stopped at Valvoline Instant oil change station. These guys have always been good if not better then most "jiffy" type places..
They checked the Jeep out for me. Crawling in and out under and even on top.. Giving the Jeep clean bill of heath.. The reason for this.. is because we've only had this Jeep since Monday the 30th.. I'd rather you read the rest via my blog page.. It was very touching what I discovered at home while cleaning and removing the carpeting..
I'll have more stories and some exciting news to share with all my readers in the next few weeks..
